Description

Epidemiological studies evaluated the distribution, determinants and clinical characteristics of glaucoma around the world. In this symposium, major findings of such studies will be present by clinician scientists. They will discuss how to incorporate all these information into daily clinical practice, such as the presence of systemic diseases, ocular blood flow, and positive family history for glaucoma. Also, some lectures will focus on how to identify patients at greater risk for glaucoma and visual impairment caused by different forms of the disease.
